      $0.25/$0.5 No Limit Holdem
      6 players
      Converted at weaktight.com

      Stacks:
      UTG ($102.50)
      UTG+1 ($48.78)
      CO ($35.29) 55/3/5~100 hands
      BTN ($32.25) 41/0/1~17 hands
      SB ($53.15) 24/20/1.75 ~300 hands
      Hero (BB) ($53.03)

      Pre-flop: ($0.75, 6 players) Hero is BB K:heart: J:diamond:
      2 folds, CO calls $0.50, BTN calls $0.50, SB calls $0.25, Hero checks

      Flop: 7:heart: K:spade: 8:spade: ($2, 4 players)
      SB bets $1, Hero raises to $3, 1 fold, BTN calls $3, SB calls $2

      Turn: 8:heart: ($11, 3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, BTN checks

      River: 2:diamond: ($11, 3 players)
      SB checks, Hero checks, BTNbets $28.75, SB folds, Hero ???

      This is a spot that happens 1 or 2 times each session, never really know what to do. His play just looks like a desperate attempt to steal the pot?

      Don't forget it's a limped pot. There is a rule: Never go broke wit just a pair in a limped pot!
      The flop raise is ok to force others to fold. On the river you have a very easy fold.
